A File Manager tool is available in all web hosting Control Panels. As the name indicates, it's employed to manage the files in an account and all File Managers support a variety of standard functions - browsing, moving, copying and deleting files. Some Control Panels may provide you with more advanced capabilities as well - changing file and folder permissions or creating and unpacking archives. Despite the fact that files may be uploaded and downloaded via an FTP client, the File Manager is employed considerably more often, so the simpler to use it is, the easier it'll be for you to handle your online presence as a whole. The opposite is also true - a File Manager that's difficult to use could make it more irritating and complicated for you to manage your site content, specifically if you lack previous experience.
File Manager in Cloud Hosting
The File Manager tool, which is a part of our in-house developed Hepsia Control Panel, will permit you to administer all the files you upload to your cloud hosting account with ease. You may move files and whole folders by dragging-and-dropping them within the account. You may upload content in the same manner - choose a file/folder on your PC and drag it to your Internet browser where the File Manager is loaded. By right-clicking a file or a folder inside your account, you could also access context menus with more complex options - you will be able to set up or to unpack an archive, to create a password-protected area, to alter the UNIX permissions using a web interface or to edit the content with various editors without ever leaving the Control Panel – a code editor, an HTML editor or a plain text editor. We have also added help articles and educational videos, which you may access right from the File Manager to find out more about its features.
File Manager in Semi-dedicated Servers
Our File Manager tool will allow you to do virtually anything you want. It's a part of the Hepsia CP, that comes with all semi-dedicated server accounts and in addition to the standard functions including copying, deleting or renaming files, you can use right-click menus in order to access more complex ones. With a few clicks, you'll be able to password-protect any folder inside the account, to edit the UNIX permissions in case a script-based app needs it or to change the content of any file using code, plain text and WYSIWYG editors. In addition, you will no longer require an FTP program to upload new content as you may simply drag-and-drop files and whole folders from your personal computer straight to the File Manager. The tool shall do the rest, saving the folder structure of the content that you upload.
